Does using Ice Cube on Carpet Dents Really Work?
The previous owners of our new home were also the original owners and lived here for over 30 years. They did some beautiful upgrades and kept the house immaculate. But, when they left, their furniture also left behind some dents in the carpet. While my Mother-In-Law was here, we decided to try out the ice cube on carpet dents test. She mentioned she had seen it online and we should give it a try.
She searched and found many tutorials. We combined a few of them and I decided to share it here because it worked out really well for us. After reading a few tutorials and a few trial and errors, we deduced this process to only needing three materials.
- Ice Cubes
Time: A few hours
This is an are on our carpet in the dining room. A huge dining hutch with ceramic shelves lived on this spot for many years.
We decided to test one corner first.
We placed ices cubes along the dent line and allowed the ice cubes to melt completely over a few hours.
After the ice melted, my Mother-In-Law fluffed and scraped the area with a fork.
Next, we vacuumed the area while it was still wet. Here is the result.
We thought it looked much better than it did before, so we tried the test on the rest of this area.
Again, we placed ice cubes on the dents, allowed it to melt, fluffed and scraped it with a fork, and vacuumed while it was still wet. Here is the result.
It’s not perfect, but it looks much better! Here is a before and after shot.
Not too bad, right? Now I have to repeat the process in what seems like a billion areas…
